About Historic Preservation Commission

About the Historic Preservation Commission

The Jackson Historic Preservation Commission was created to preserve, promote and develop the historical resources of the city and to advise the governing authorities as to the designation of historic districts, landmarks, and landmark sites.

This is a 9-member board, each serving 3-year terms. Commissioners are appointed by the Mayor, subject to confirmation by the City Council, and serve as unpaid volunteer municipal officials.

The Commission meets once a month, on the second Wednesday of each month at 12:00 p.m. at 200 South President Street in downtown Jackson.

Additionally, the MDAH database is helpful for details and additional information for historic preservation.
